Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings

My friend Chara got this recipe from her friend Mandy. She says it is better than chocolate!! Which means a lot coming from her! I'm trying it tomorrow for Christmas dinner! :)

2 (8-count) cans refrigerated crescent rolls
3 to 4 tart apples, peeled and slice into 16 wedges
1/2 cup butter, melted
1-1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 (12-ounce) can Mountain Dew soda

Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13×9-inch dish with cooking spray. Separate dough into 16 triangles. Place apple quarter on shortest side of each triangle. Roll up each, starting at shortest side, and rolling to opposite point. Place point side down in prepared pan.
In small bowl, stir together melted butter, sugar and cinnamon; spoon evenly over crescent-wrapped apples. Pour Mountain Dew over all.
Bake at 350°F. for 35 to 45 minutes or until apples are tender. Serve warm with sauce. Top with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream if desired. Makes 16 dumplings.


  1. Just came across your blog and have to say, I'm not a cook. I hate cooking. I'd rather watch paint dry... BUT, i'm definitely trying this recipe tomorrow and a few others that you have posted on here. I'll bookmark your site, so keep updating the recipes. Maybe it'll turn me into some type of cook (probably not, but at least it gives me some options to try if they are easy enough :-) )


  2. This was AMAZING!!!! Such a hit for everyone. So easy to make and man were they good. Definitely have to add whip cream or Cool Whip at the end. thanks!

  3. Yay, found it. I soooo enjoyed this recipe at the party yesterday. Can't wait for Chuck to make it. (haha...he is the baker)
